My First Lomo Meet on The SouthBank

6

My first time lomoing in London on the Southbank.

This was my first Lomo meet up. I liked taking part and it was good running around on the Southbank taking pictures. We had to meet up at the Hayward Gallery Concrete Café and when I arrived I was surprised at how many people were there already, waiting to try out their cameras. I wanted to use a white Colorsplash.

When we decided to go along the Thames walk, we went to The National Theatre with all the books in one place under the bridge. I was looking forward to going on the beach but the tide was in, so it’s worth checking the timetables if you want to do this. So we went into Gabriels Wharf a market where there were some brilliant carved wooden chairs and animals that you could sit on.

Walking past all the shops at the OXO Tower, we then bought some toffee nuts and stopped to keep warm and eat them.This area was closed in and there were lots of people trying to get past. The Tate Modern was a bit further on and I was getting tired from all the walking and cold so we went in to look at the exhibition, it was really good, another spider and lots of books and beds!

The Millennium ‘wobbly’ bridge was good fun for posing on and my mum another lomographer took some pinholes of me. I took some of St. Paul’s Cathedral, I’m glad I didn’t have to walk to it! then we walked back to meet up again and return the camera. I had a great time running around with some other children when I got there.

    Cool gallery! The colorsplash is not the easiest cam for a start, but the ghostly effect you've got gives your shots a lot of charm!
    31, 29, 23, 22, 11, 8 and 5 are my fav!
